"A delicious creamy topping for chicken or fish. Can be served cold or hot. I personally prefer it cold on top of hot broiled lemon pepper mahi mahi with brown rice and steamed spinach. Garnish dish with cilantro leaves after topping with sauce."

Wonderful sauce, but a bit misleading calling it "pesto". As pesto is a sauce made with basil, pine nuts and olive oil.
LOVE THIS! I didn't have the artichokes, but I will make sure I have them for next time. I did have a little difficulty blending everything in the blender, but a splash of evoo fixed that issue. I used this to top potato pancakes, and that was wonderful. This has a great, light, fresh flavor that I really, REALLY enjoyed...This is a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
This was an excellent pesto! Some folks might not be aware that a true pesto is an herb flavored sauce, however, since "basil" pesto became so popular first, it is commonly assumed to be the only "true" pesto. HTH!
I used marinated artichoke, equal amount of cilantro and basil, and substituted whipping cream for cream cheese. It was the best pesto ever!
